Idk if anyone has posted this yet, the phone comes out july 15 that's what engadget says

Hardware: From afar, the Droid X looks like the EVO 4G, but up close the differences are obvious. Its slightly longer and wider, and it has four physical buttons along the bottom of the screen rather than touch-sensitive ones like those on the EVO.

Screen: Apparently the Droid X has a 4.3-inch, FWVGA 854 x 480-resolution screen, though we couldn't confirm that on the device itself. Regardless, it was super crisp and the capacitive screen was mighty responsive to taps and multitouch gestures.

Motorala Blur/Android: We confirmed that the Droid X was running Android 2.1 with some new sort of Motoblur (perhaps Ninjablur) skin. We didn't get to configure Blur with our social networks and contacts, but it didn't seem as "in your face" as the original. There's also a new navigation bar along the bottom that lets you easily jump to different Android panes. Those two pieces combined with the fact that there will be a separate HDMI dock available has us thinking multimedia is the focus here.
Camera / Camcorder: The Droid X

Camera/Camcorder: The Droid X has a 8-megapixel camera, and records 720p video. But here's the thing about the camera: you have to tap to focus and it doesn't refocus until you actually snap the picture. In addition, the camera button on the phone was super stiff, so when we went to shoot a pic the entire thing shook and blurred the image.

Keyboard: Just like with the CLIQ XT, Motorola preloads Swype. However, we also noticed a "multitouch keyboard" option.

Performance: It undoubtedly has its 1GHz ARMv7 processor (presumably an OMAP3630) to thank for that. If the specs on the model we saw are correct, the phone will come with 8GB of storage space. Obviously, we didn't have enough time to test battery life, but there was some sort of special battery management software on the phone.

Does anyone notice there are a lot of new phones on the market?

I still like the iphone over this droid x. One reason is because its smaller and a bit thinner :rock:

Fits in your pocket better

Rooting is the same thing as jailbreak, just a different name for it.You can customize Android phone just as much if not more than a iphone.

Honestly no, Android and Palm's webOS is as customizable as a iphone if not more.

Honestly yes, this & the Evo are better. But it depends on what your personal preference is really

One of the reasons I wanted the iPhone 4 was, because my iPod touch is broken so I figured why get a new iPod touch if I can just get the phone which has everything the touch has.

Jk the phone comes out July 15

I would also suggest the iphone is better than this phone because it is much smaller and thiner so it can actually fit into your pocket
